A hair tissue mineral analysis is a screening test that measures the mineral content of your hair. Mineral content of the hair reflects the mineral content of the body’s tissues.

Minerals are the “spark plugs” of life. They are involved in almost all enzyme reactions within the body. Without enzyme activity, life ceases to exist. A trace mineral analysis is preventive as well as being useful as a screening tool.

However, a hair tissue mineral analysis is much more than a test for minerals. Providing a blueprint of your biochemistry, a hair tissue mineral analysis can provide pertinent information about your metabolic rate, energy levels, carbohydrate tolerance, vitality, stage of stress, immune system and glandular activity such as thyroid or adrenal conditions.

The test also reveals the level of heavy metals such as mercury, lead, aluminum, arsenic and cadmium. With the proper nutritional balancing program, we improve the body’s energy level, rest the sympathetic nervous system, and strengthen the organs of elimination. Then the body can clean house on its own.

This screening test can also reduce the guesswork involved when recommending nutritional supplements and dietary modifications.
